The Edge of Darkness

October 13, 2018

Too many thoughts
Rambled and jumbled
Making no sense
Overwhelmed and unsure
Too many things
Pulled in different directions
Wanting just to be still
Shutting everything out
The darkness beckons
A place filled with silence
And peace all around
As the tears well up inside
She teeters on the edge of darkness
Ever so slowly
Before finally embracing
Its comfort and calmness
Just for a moment, or perhaps even two
Just long enough
To dust away the cobwebs 
And revive her spirit
Just long enough
To make her whole
